Robert Yuen was born in Chicago, IL., USA. An entrepreneur, strategist, and architectural designer, he received his M.Arch and MSc. in Digital Technologies from the University of Michigan. Robert Yuen is now Partner at Dixon & Moe, Co-Founder of Section Cut and Co-Founder of monograph.io.

Robert’s key mission is to elevate the AEC industry by developing and designing specific software applications for architects, engineers and designers. With domain knowledge and expertise in marketing, strategy, and architecture, his interests are in consulting on real world problems and in taking digital ideas from end to end.

Monograph started as a subscription-based website-building platform for architects that offers beautiful, responsive templates and a free concierge service. Unlike other website-building platforms like WordPress, Monograph Website was designed to be wysiwyg (“what you see is what you get”). While working in WordPress can be cumbersome an require programming knowledge, the Monograph Website backend showed the page you’re editing exactly as it will look when it goes live. The drag-n-drop interface makes it easy to edit content, choose fonts and arrange elements.

Today Monograph developes a data driven platform designed to help architects and engineers understand and run their businesses more effectively, combining project planning and management with time tracking, forecasting, reporting and a lightweight CRM.

Quotes from Robert Yuen

  • "But what architectural training does do is it encourages a creative mindset and promotes openness, scrappiness, a hard working ethic, receptiveness to criticism, and ensures you iterate and test solutions once they have been developed."
